The Girls Like Spaghetti Summary

The Girls Like Spaghetti: Why, You Can't Manage Without Apostrophes! by Lynne Truss

A giant kids' playground certainly sounds like fun, but you might want to watch out in the giant kid's playground; he has a tendency to step on people. A sign stating, "we're here to help", would definitely disappoint the customers if the apostrophe were removed. Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons once again illustrate the hilarious confusion that punctuation can cause. Having dealt with the comma in Eats, Shoots & Leaves for Children, here they take on the apostrophe using lively, subversive pictures from one of America's leading illustrators and show how much chaos can ensue from one tiny squiggle.

Observer 'Lynne Truss is taking primary schools to task in her battle for grammatical correctness.' Times Educational Supplement 'A hilarious illustrated version for children highlighting the confusion that can occur when a comma is put in the wrong place... Great for children and adults alike.' Bookseller"
